About the Cover

Certain fish species have proved to be especially good for the production of domesticated strains, including several livebearers, angelfish, and discus, like the one on our cover this month. Through hybridization and selective breeding a multitude of discus varieties have been created, with new ones arriving on the market regularly. Read about the history and current status of discus breeding in San Francisco in our feature article about master breeder Cliff Young (p. 100).

Tip of the Month:

That the splash tetra Copella arnoldi lays its eggs out of the water! The pair jumps out of the water and lay its eggs on the underside of an overhanging leaf. When spawning is over, the male splashes the eggs periodically to keep them wet. The fry fall into the water when they hatch.
